Configuring Bitium Active Directory Agent

Bitium’s new on-premise Directory Agent allows organizations to connect with existing directory infrastructure such as Active Directory (AD), OpenLDAP, or other vendor directory systems that support Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP).

The agent offers several benefits including:

  • Easy Directory Sync integration for users and groups.
  • Use of SAML protocol to connect and authenticate users.
  • Agent can be installed on the AD server or any other Windows or Linux System.
